Cheryl Cole – Boy Like You

4 Nov

I don’t normally post videos that don’t have proper videos (either PVs or stage performances) but this song has been in my head for a little while. Cheryl Cole has seemingly set the UK charts on fire with her solo debut. I won’t talk too much about it, because I’ll just start criticising her. I’ve not been overly impressed by the songs that I’ve heard (literally, go into any shop and you’ll hear her soon enough – sometimes the whole album just on repeat!) but one song that I quite like is Boy Like You. It samples the awesome Fleetwood Mac’s White Lies and features will.i.am as guest rapper/general mentor man. Cole’s offering is nowhere near as good as White Lies, let’s get that straight. But it’s made quite good because of the sample. I love 80s music like it’s going out of fashion (quite literally) so to hear this is quite cool. What do you think?

Cheryol Cole – Fight For This Love Video

21 Sep

So the video for Cheryl Cole’s debut single has been released. My impressions are that it’s very forgettable and Cheryl will never be believable as a genuine crumping, street dancer. The video is weird, it doesn’t seem to have a clear direction, but oh well, it’s nice to see her trying :)

Cheryl Cole – Fight for This Love

7 Sep

This weekend has been rather eventful for new music in the UK. Leona Lewis, Robbie Williams and now Cheryl Cole. Cheryl Cole is part of Girls Aloud (<3) and a judge on X Factor but is going solo and her debut solo single is called Fight for This Love. It actually premiered this morning and… I quite like it! Her voice doesn’t sound as weak as it does in Girls Aloud or on will.i.am’s Heartbreaker. The single is pretty catchy, it’s like a Girls Aloud’s song but also not. Chorus is really catchy. I doubt if it will get to number 1; it doesn’t feel like a number 1… but definitely top 3. Bring on Nadine though.

The Promise of a Brit Award

19 Feb

My favourite girlband, Girls Aloud, won their first Brit award last night! The Brit awards are the British version of the Grammys. They won Best British Single, voted by the public, for The Promise! The song is really catchy, it’s not my favourite but it got to number one, so I’m not really complaining! Their latest album isn’t my favourite (where’s Nadine?!), but it has a couple of cool songs.

They also performed the song, live on the night complete with big pink feather fans and seriously short dresses. To my surprise (and I think the wider public’s as well) Sarah actually sang well, and hit those notes! Let’s not talk about that performance on gmtv… check out the performance!

In other news, what the hell was up with U2 and Bono? Or maybe I should just say Bono. Firstly, the song isn’t all that good, nor does it really make sense. Secondly, why was Bono wearing glasses? and then eye shadow? It really doesn’t make sense! Take That was cool, although their performance didn’t really go anywhere. Estelle and the Ting Tings rocked it. Kings of Leon were amazing, and ever so daper! James Corden and Matthew Horne were probably (read: hopefully) drunk. Duffy sang super good. I don’t know what else to say… It wasn’t my favourite Brits ever, but congrats to Girls Aloud; you totally deserve! Here’s to three more albums (and hopefully more!)
